K-12 School Information

Culture-to-Community is a program that provides students in the kindergarten to grade 12 school system in Newfoundland and Labrador with access to other cultures through direct, in-person contact with Memorial University students from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Are you a teacher? Do you have curriculum outcomes that we can help with?

Memorial University's new immigrant and international students come from more than 90 countries and have expertise and experience in many areas. One of our student volunteers could travel to your class to talk about their country, culture, faith, or experience with topics of global significance.

The program can help teachers with curriculum outcomes in Social Studies, Language Arts, Music, Religious Education and more. For example, in grade six Social Studies curriculum – Unit Four: Expression of Culture, students learn about African sports, games, and recreational activities. Our African students can visit the classroom and speak about the popular sports and games in each of the regions of Africa.

Your students receive first-hand experience and it’s a great learning opportunity for them!

Our volunteers: We have volunteers from a wide variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds who are currently receiving training for the program. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and motivated to get out into the schools.

To Apply: We have been receiving and approving school applications as they come in. Although most of our funding has already been allocated schools around the province are encouraged to apply.
